, she gets an f. >> that ad, that pressure ad comes from new york city mayor michael bloomberg's pro-gun reform superpac. it's part of his campaign to build support in congress for meaningful national gun reform. and you know what? it appears to be working. once that ad started running in her district, debbie halvorson, who had said she would not be moved on this issue, debbie halvorson moved on this issue. ms. halvorson telling buzzfeed, quote, my win will not be a victory for the nra. how can it be a victory for the nra when i'm for universal background checks, beefing up the database, going after straw buyers and making sure we register our guns. those are not things the nra wants. that's true. those are not things the nra wants. and that is probably going to make it hard to hold on to that nra "a" rating. but maybe that's not the most important thing in the world anymore? in the debate over gun policy and gun laws, we are supposed to believe that the only real pressure on this issue comes from the nra, who of course always push against reform. but there is pressure on the other s
as well, and it's not just michael bloomberg's pac. we reported recently on new democratic senator heidi heitkamp. well, the coalition to start gun violence started running these ads in washington, d.c. and back home in north dakota, calling senator heitkamp out for having said that. senator heitkamp then issued a statement clarifying her feelings, saying, quote, all options must be on the table when it comes to addressing gun violence in america. heidi heitkamp responding to pressure, just the way debbie "not budging" halvorson responded to pressure when she discovered a sudden new-found willingness to advocate for background checks for guns, nra be damned. pressure worked. pressure works. pressure works not just for the nra, but for the other side too. well, today in washington, the senate judiciary committee convened a hearing, a very high profile hearing with a title that was ambitiously broad, "what should we do about gun violence?" five witnesses on both sides of the issue offered expert testimony. those witnesses included nra executive vice president wayne lapierre, naturally. way
that they actually in the background check process they tried to tighten that up. we heard from michael bloomberg who said with the stroke of a pen president obama would be able to make sure that that is improved even further that more agencies are sharing information about who is mentally ill. there are privacy issues andlytandlyte -- lawsuits will get in the way of this. it is involving congress and the biggest thing that they think they will be able to achieve with the least resistance is closing the gun show loop hole where so many people can purchase weapons without a background check. the white house wants for congress to pursue the assault weapons ban to ban high count magazines or clips as you may know them. definitely the perspective of the white house is that legislative action is needed but they may have room to go their own way on some things. >> emotional joe biden says this time it will be different. thank you so much for that. i want to talk about piers morgan. he is in the middle of the fierce gun violence debate. he has been talking about it almost every night since the shootings. hi
